The new UBS 3.0 interface has dramatically improved the connection between the hosts and peripherals across the world because of its superior speed at 5 Gb/s and power efficiency. However, despite the improvement in electrical performance, the pace at which USB 3.0 popularity was growing has been limited because of its length limitation, especially in the Machine Vision industry where longer distance connection is often required.
To break the length barrier for USB 3.0 application, Newnex developed the FireNEX repeater cables-the FireNEX-uLINK™ series, that are capable of extending USB 3.0 signal up to 16 meters without sacrificing signal quality. The FireNEX-uLINK™ utilizes USB 3.0 standard copper cable to transfer data by restoring attenuated signals that travel along the cable. It is reliable and fully bus powered, making it a perfect fit for Machine Vision, Kinect, and many other applications.
